About the Author

Howard Bloom has been called "the Darwin, Newton, Einstein, and Freud of the twenty-first century" and "the next Stephen Hawking." He is the author of The Genius of the Beast: A Radical Re-Vision of Capitalism ("impressive, stimulating, and tremendously enjoyable"—James Fallows, national correspondent, the Atlantic Monthly); Global Brain: The Evolution of Mass Mind from the Big Bang to the 21st Century ("reassuring and sobering"—the New Yorker); and The Lucifer Principle: A Scientific Expedition into the Forces of History ("mesmerizing"—the Washington Post). A recent visiting scholar at New York University, Bloom is the founder of the International Paleopsychology Project, founder of the Space Development Steering Committee (a group that includes astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Edgar Mitchell), and a founding board member of the Epic of Evolution Society. In addition, his scientific articles have appeared in PhysicaPlus, New Ideas in Psychology, and Across Species Comparisons and Psychopathology and on arXiv.org. He has appeared on Good Morning America, the CBS Morning News, CBS News Nightwatch, CNN, the BBC, and over one hundred other media outlets.

Absolutely awful. Woe to those who take on this insufferable tome! Okay, so it's not THAT big but I slogged my way through 320 pages and finally gave up. I didn't quit due to any lack of understanding, but rather because Bloom's a terrible excuse for a writer, endlessly content to repeat himself ad nauseum and begin nearly ever damn sentence with "And!" I can't recall how many times I had the desire to close the book and hurl it across the room with all my might. And in light of the fact that I read more than half of it, all I gleaned from the precious little he had to say concerned how we create, develop and change ideas to improve the human condition. After 320 pages, I encountered nothing at all about how the  cosmos creates. Perhaps he gets to that eventually, but WHEN?????

Worth the read if you are interested in the history of ideas, but ultimately does not provide a very convincing solution to the creation problem. The composition, as another reviewer put it less than kindly, is amateurish. An editor would have been nice.
